Description:
This three-day intensive course teaches the essential elements of ADO.NET such that at the end of the course the programmer is able to utilize its tremendous database manipulation powers to build effective database applications. The course includes a major case study demonstrating the use of ADO.NET in a realistic setting. It is current to .NET 4.6, Visual Studio 2017 and SQL Server 2016.
Prerequisites:
A basic knowledge of SQL and of programming the .NET Framework using C#. The student should also understand the fundamentals of XML. To get full benefit from the examples in the course, some knowledge of Windows Forms is desirable.

The essentials of ADO.NET do not depend on the user interface layer, which may be a Console program, a Windows program or a Web program. The examples in this course use Console and Windows Forms clients. Appendix B discusses some special considerations for Web clients. Sample programs are provided illustrating ADO.NET with ASP.NET Web Forms clients.
Learning Objectives:
Understand the architecture and main classes of ADO.NET
Gain fluency in programming ADO.NET using C#
Gain a thorough understanding of the use of disconnected DataSets for building highly scalable applications
Acquire a working knowledge of the tight coupling of XML with ADO.NET
Learn how to use additional features in ADO.NET, including asynchronous operations, multiple active result sets, and bulk copy
Acquire a working knowledge of LINQ and the Entity Framework
Implement a realistic case study that ties together many concepts of ADO.NET in a practical demonstration
